Who Loves Ya Baby ?

If you were born after 1990 you missed out on a world full of color. Today the non colors of black, white, gray, and beige rule the landscape both urban and suburban. Growing up in the 70s and 80s the streets were still full of cars, neon, signs and clothing consisting of every color found in a large box of crayons. The people themselves were as colorful as their surroundings. All it takes is to watch a TV show from that period of time that was mostly shot on the street and not in a studio. Kojak is one of my favorite tv shows and to see the colors of the cars is a feast for the eyes, even the tuxedo black color can't be emulated by today's automobile manufactures. The colors of the clothing, interiors, neon and painted signs brings to me more than just a feeling of nostalgia, it's a feeling of great comfort. Why have people become so afraid of color ?
